“Lovely, little place in Essaouira”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

A good place to stay for the price. Rooms and amenities are basic, but clean. Location is central in Essaouira's medina and very easy to find based on the map on their website. Best part of this place is the staff. It's run by the young family members who are personable and ready to help you out with any questions. Breakfast is served on the terrace and is lovely.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

I loved Les Matins Bleus! The atmosphere is incredible. Its more than charming. Its like a hidden treasure. The first floor has an open dining area, but then several smaller lounge-like rooms that are very cozy at night. I enjoyed time at night just drawing and drinking mint tea (delivered by a friendly and extremely helpful staff). I had the smallest room, which had a bathroom outside the door, but it was perfect. The room was very comfortable, and even though it was warm, they offered an extra heater just in case. Breakfast staff was attentive, offering me more coffee as needed. Desk staff was also very helpful. The decor was beautiful--every detail considered. I wish I lived there! Also, it was an incredible value. Highly, highly, recommended!

Room Tip: I'm pretty sure any room is a good room. I had the smallest, and it was still great.

My girlfriend and I stayed there for 2 nights in March 2013, and it was lovely. It was well located and not too hard to find with a map. The staff were very friendly and gave us recommendations for places to eat. The included breakfast was good. It’s worth asking for a room on the top floor as you’ll have a very nice sight when you wake and these will have natural daylight. The website pictures definitely don't do it justice...!

My girlfriend and I staid for 1 week in feb 2013 in this lovely little old family house. We understood from the young familymembers who run the place that it used to be a primaryschool and that they lived for several generations in it. It is situated in the heart of the old Medina: so an excellent location to discover the beautiful city. And surprisingly tranquil. The personel is unbeleavably friendly, modern / liberal (they say themselves: 'Muslim light') and speak many languages excellent! They make time for you, every contactmoment they have a friendly word and make a short chat. They serve a lovely breakfast, fresh orangejuice every morning and fresh bread! The rooms are just perfect, not very spacious but clean and charming, with a hot shower! They managed a taxy from the airport for us and one of the brothers even accompanied us to the house of a painter and negotiated for us. Essaouira is a pearl to discover and my girlfriend and I are very happy that we picked this place to stay. So highly recommended!

Such a lovely peaceful atmosphere in contrast to the busy town outside, run by genuinely caring and friendly staff. The rooms are fairly basic, but clean and will meet all of your needs. The home cooked food is fantastic and very reasonably priced. I really couldn't fault this place at all.

I stayed here for two nights. Because of the layout you do hear people coming up and down the steps (from my room anyway) but guests were not very noisy. The price was reasonable and the lobby is very cozy. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful (they called the hotel in my next destination to arrange my booking). Breakfast, which was included, was pretty basic but they do have a very nice rooftop where you can eat. I would stay here again. It is also a very short walk to the water.

The Riad is a calm get away with great music playing up to the terrace. The People are warm and friendly and always ready to make suggestions for what to see. The location is perfect; easy to find and near everything you could want. It is close to the supra tours bus station, near one of the big gates to the medina and plenty of food around the corner. I loved it so much that I have already returned with my family.
